Does Bamboo support nested variables?

Assume we have a variable A=abc, is it possible to define a variable B=${bamboo.A}xyz?

Thank you for your question.

Could you please let us know which Bamboo version are you running and where are you planning on using the nested variable, please?

Kind regards,

I haven't tried it, but:


If you look at the documentation on variables there are links on the subject.


Rafael, Bamboo ver 5.7.2. I am going to define some global variables, one of them is a version number or something, which is referenced by others.

Looks like the plugin mentioned by @Kendall Shaw is what I need. Thanks, @Kendall Shaw.

Just want to double confirm that, nested variables are not natively supported by Bamboo, right?

Ha, I could answer my own question. The answer is YES, see Bad+Substitution+in+nested+variables. The ticket BAM-8266 has been dormant there for 3 years!! 


Hi @Krystian Krystian , we can make do with hard coding the variable for now. Your suggestion is appreciated.
